    There is a beautiful park in the Salt Lake City (Utah) area. We visited that gorgeous state and sauntered through that park one year in October. The young woman sitting on the bench, I think, had been out for a run and stopped to take a rest. She was having a private moment in close proximity to these Canada Geese. It was just a fantasy of mine, as I created the title of the piece, that perhaps something weighed heavily on her mind, and the geese were providing a bit of comfort or pleasant distraction.

    Latest Artists Choice Reviews

    Feels like I'm there

    Love the orange which brings the viewer through the scene from back to front and around again. Sharp edges give it a photographic quality while chunky strokes in the water soften the scene and make it more human. Love this painting.

    Depth Perfection

    Masterful use of color temperature to create sense of depth, distance, and the fullness of the sky. Hate to give 4 stars for originality; doesn't need to be original to be amazing but it is a landscape.

    Alberta in Fall

    Beautiful piece with great atmosphere!
